About me

I am qualified in Person Centred Counselling (BA Hons), I offer a professional and confidential service for a wide range of issues within a calm setting. I endeavour to support you on your journey of self exploration by building a non judgemental and empathetic environment where you can feel safe to share your thoughts and feelings. Sessions are led by the clients needs at that time,

I offer your initial session for £10.00 this enables us to meet and explore individual client’s requirements.

What is Person Centred Counselling
Person centred counselling is a humanistic talking therapy which assists the development of the uniquely individual therapeutic alliance between counsellor and client.

As a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and to ensure my work is ethically conducted, I work inline with the values and principles of their ethical framework for good practice which can be found at http://www.bacp.co.uk/ethical_framework/

To ensure ethical practice I attend supervision sessions with a supervisor who is highly qualified and accredited by the BACP as both a counsellor and supervisor.

Long and short term counselling available guided by the clients needs.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
